Cranston Veterinary Hospital, Calgary, Alberta | Services

Now offering Ultrasound Services!!  Abdominal and Cardiac ultrasound now available!Wellness and Preventive Medicine

Our focus is to help prevent disease and illness in your family's pets. Our goal is to help you minimize the need to treat and cure preventable diseases. Preventative medicine increases your pet's chances of having a long and healthy life. We accomplish this through routine annual physical examinations of your pet, proper nutrition, parasite control and through the use of a vaccination program based on an individualized risk assessment for your pet.

Physical Examinations
Of all the services we offer our clients, we believe this is the most important one. A thorough examination allows us to pinpoint diseases before they develop. Palpation of your pet from head to toe gives us the opportunity to locate not only unwanted guests but allow us to feel internal organs that may be abnormally enlarged or other serious abnormalities. Touch is the most developed tool in our arsenal of diagnostic instruments. Naturally we do recommend having blood work processed yearly, similar to what your own doctor recommends, as this also provides us with valuable information that can only be retrieved through in-depth analysis.

Medical Services

We offer a full range of specialized veterinary medical services, including cardiology, dermatology, ophthalmology, neurology, oncology, endocrinology and gastroenterology.


Our in-house Digital X-Ray equipment aids us in quickly assessing any physical injury or anomaly that may be affecting you pet’s well being. We can then quickly determine the appropriate course of action, medical and/or surgical.


Our fully equipped surgical suite, complete with a heated surgery table, ceiling mounted lights, and state of the art monitoring equipment, enables us to offer a full range of corrective and elective surgeries for you pet.

In-House Laboratory

Diagnostic lab equipment here in the hospital enables us to run the necessary tests needed to diagnose health issues with your pet right here in the clinic. This helps us to quickly deterimine the cause of the problem and the treatment required.

In-House Pharmacy

We stock most of the standard medications that might be perscribed for your cat or dog. As a result, once a diagnosis is made, we can begin the appropriate treatment immediately, often before you leave the hospital.
